Bob Donnan-USA Today Sports

Name: C.J. Harris

Age: 22

Height: 6-foot-3

Position: Shooting Guard

School/Country: Wake Forest

Latest Stats: 15.4 ppg, 2.3 rpg, 1.9 apg


At 6-foot-3, Wake Forest senior guard C.J. Harris concluded his collegiate career by averaging 15.4 points, 2.3 rebounds and 1.9 assists per game. Harris is quite undersized for the shooting guard position at the NBA, so at this point his potential remains up in the air. Harris can score and he has proven a continuous ability throughout his four seasons as a Demon Deacon. While Wake Forest struggled during his tenure, Harris remained a bright spot and a leader for the program.

Harris is not afraid to shoot the ball from the outside, but he has an undeniable ability to put the ball on the floor, get to the rim and draw fouls. Harris shot over five free throws per game this past season and that’s pretty good for someone who measures in at 6-foot-2. Harris however, is not a likely draft choice, so he could be looking at a career overseas at this point.


Strengths: Harris’ offensive game is spectacular. He can shoot the ball from the outside and put the ball on the deck and get to the rim. Harris has no trouble, even despite his size at 6-foot-2, in getting to the free throw where he shoots nearly 85%.


Weaknesses: Harris lacks the size to play the two guard position at the NBA level and he doesn’t really have the skills to play the point guard. While his offensive skill set excelled at the collegiate level, he could struggle getting to the rim and getting his shot off in the NBA.


Draft Projection: Undrafted
